Engine Swap

Hey all. I found this site from a link posted here, and found a f22b. Well its posted as a f22b on the site, saying its from 92-95 ludes and accords. I thought it was f22a's that came... IDK. anyways, ive decided that since im going back to school, I wont have too much income, but i will be able to slowly piece and research what i want for my car. No more other cars, no more w/e's.

Anyways, which f22 is the one i want?

Also, with these, what can be used from my h23?

I know i can keep the h23 tranny, which is still good. But clutch? Other stuff?

This is going to be a motor that I run for about a year or so, then boost.

With that, what ecu should i get? Lots of questions, but Im kinda in need of this to be done as soon as possible, as my poor engine right now is heaving the ho.

Your car is a 96 which means its OBD2. If you want to buy a new motor you have to go with an OBD2 motor, or you can pick up an OBD1 but you'd have to buy a new wiring harness, ECU, and jumper harness to convert to OBD1. If you plan on tuning your motor or doing any serious modifications than OBD1 is the way to go. If your just gonna motor swap and drive then it'll be cheaper to go with an OBD2 motor.
